Bangladesh Safari with HH Jayapataka Swami 2018

Safari 2018 will be in Bangladesh from March 5th till March 25th.

Bangladesh Safari will be with the transcendental association and blessings of HH Srila Jayapataka Swami, HH Bhakti Dhira Damodar Swami, HH Bhakti Nityananda Swami and many other great vaishnavas from around the world.

Foreign devotees who wish to participate, will need a visa to visit Bangladesh (including Indians). We are planning to enter Bangladesh on March 5th by land at the border of Benapole. After Bangladesh Safari is over, we will come back to India so you have to ensure that your India visa is “double entry” or “multiple entry”.

Bangladesh previously was part of Bengal and is the birthplace of many great Vaishnavas and eternal associates of Lord Caitanya. Among them are His parents Jagannath Misra and Saci Mata, Rupa and Sanatana Goswami, Sri Advaita Acarya, Haridasa Thakur, Pundarika Vidyanidhi, etc.

From 9th to 11th March there will be a Vaishnava Convention in Rupa Sanatan Dham with the association of more that 2000 initiated devotees and the presence of many ISKCON Gurus and Sanyasis.

We will keep updating with more information. If you want to confirm your attendance or you have any enquires please contact spiritualsafari108@gmail.com
